Judges will be looking at three categories:
Originality: Have we heard these jokes before from another comic? An email? On the street? Did you use “easy” jokes such as sex, bowel movements, or the objects inside your nose? Were you able to be funny without being too dirty?
Stage Presence: Did you seem comfortable on stage? Did you shake, stutter, or just blank out? Did you talk to the entire room? Did you look down or look up too much?
Funny: Overall were you funny.
